Saratoga’s Community Federal Credit Union Offering Local Students Chance to Win Scholarships

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga’s Credit Union is offering local high school seniors a chance to win scholarships for college. Saratoga’s Credit Union is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s statewide credit union college scholarship program, which provides credit union members with scholarships. In 2021, scholarships awarded ranged from $500 to $1,500. 

To be eligible, students must be high school seniors attending two- or four-year accredited educational institutions for the first time in the fall of 2022. They must also be members of Saratoga’s Credit Union or another participating New York credit union. 

Students/applicants will be competing against other credit union members from across the state. Applicants will be judged based upon academic achievements, extracurricular and community activities, and the quality of written essays. Last year, the New York Credit Union Association awarded $30,750 in scholarships to 41 students through the program. In addition, Saratoga’s Credit Union will award a $1,000 scholarship to two local students. 

“Saratoga’s Community Federal Credit Union has been awarding scholarships to deserving students for many years,” said Don Denofio, CEO. “Recipients are selected by a volunteer Scholarship Committee and are chosen based on academic achievement, leadership activities, service to the community, and responses to an essay question. We are pleased to continue to award these scholarships and support education in our community.” 

For more information about the scholarship program, contact the credit union at 518-583-2323.
